Recruitment message hidden on new White House site


President Biden’s administration is reportedly looking to draft tech experts for a federal agency through a hidden message on the new official White House site. 

The website included a message hidden in its HTML code inviting those who found it to join the U.S. Digital Service, Reuters reported Wednesday as Biden took office and the site was updated. 

“If you’re reading this, we need your help building back better,” the message said, according to the news service. 

The federal agency was created in 2014, under former President Obama’s administration. It provides consultation services to federal agencies on information technology. 

U.S. Digital Service staff typically work for the agency between six months and two years, with a maximum length of four years, and work within various federal agencies. 

A spokesperson for the White House was not immediately available for comment.
